Band It: Bicep Curls With Forward Lunges

Bicep curls are an essential strength-training move, but they can become boring after a while. So make them a little more challenging by adding lunges.

Grab a resistance band and keep reading.

  • Stand with both feet together, holding the handle of a resistance band in either hand. Step your left foot onto the middle of the band.
  • Take a step forward with your right foot, so there's about four feet between your right heel and left toes. Keep your arms by your sides.
  • Inhale, and as you exhale simultaneously bend your right knee and both elbows. Your front thigh will be parallel with the floor, and your right knee directly above your ankle. You may need to widen your stance a little on this first lunge, just to make sure you have the correct alignment.
  • As you inhale, straighten your front leg and both arms, coming back to the starting position. This counts as one rep. Fifteen reps equals a set; do three sets on each side.
